Frequently Asked Questions
How is your company addressing the COVID19 global pandemic?
Breaking Wave Theatre Company believes in putting people before the production. With this in mind, our seasons moving forward will involve a hybrid of virtual and in-person events, with strict precautions taken during any in-person gatherings.
Why do your biographies include pronouns?
BWTC members have the option to share their pronouns because we believe this is an important way to acknowledge and affirm each other's gender identities. The practice of sharing pronouns has been implemented into our BWTC gatherings for those that are comfortable. For a guide to sharing pronouns from the LGBTQIA Resource Center, please click here.
What is the audition format for your productions?
For Acting roles, we prefer auditionees to arrive with a memorized one-minute monologue of their choice. However, we always have sample monologues available to choose from at the audition site. The director may also ask for a cold-reading of an excerpt of the script, with or without scene partners.
For Singing roles, we ask for up to 16-bars or one-minute of a song with a Minus-1 provided on a device (with headphone jack) or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to auditions.
For Dancing roles, we ask that auditionees dress comfortably for a group audition in which the choreographer will demonstrate a short routine and have them learn and perform it to the best of their ability.
Please be prepared to spend one to two hours at the auditions, as you may be called to read with other auditionees.
